JR on Angle Passing a WWE Physical

In the Q&A section of JRsBarBQ.com, Jim Ross had the following to say regarding whether or not he feels Kurt Angle could pass a WWE physical and return to the ring for the company.

"I'm not a doctor nor do I know the extent of Kurt's physical ailments, so I have no way of answering your question with any degree of accuracy. I'd hope that he could."

As we previously reported, the internal feeling in WWE is that Angle will be returning to the company in some capacity when his TNA contract expires later this year. We also noted that many in WWE feel it's doubtful Angle would be able to pass the required WWE physical to receive clearance to compete in the ring, so there has been speculation that he could work with NXT talents in a trainer capacity.
